What do you like best?

Elastic Path is a forum for first-time business API. The REST-Level 3 API is very flexible and can be accessed from the platforms CMS, Web, IoT, Speech. Projects implementing the Elastic Path framework can incorporate the experience of checkout on multiple devices providing seamless user experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The kit of CloudOps is not quite complete and needs some fumbling through the manual to grasp all the bits and pieces, but once you're going through it, the implementation is extremely simple, creating a single-button style environment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Knowing that a marketing name should only be used once is important, and that performing all the effort is a nuisance because there is already an current name in the scheme. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As regards efficiency, we now have the potential to do 10x of what our old systems used to be able to do from a very wide Elastic Path competitor. And with the Commerce UI, our business executives will change the catalog and deals directly, instead of trying to open a ticket with the technical staff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Their API is super lightweight and fast, allowing really rapid development cycles. The Flows concept is fantastic and let's you quickly extend and customize all core objects to fit your business as well as create new objects to store custom data. The Observables concept is really exciting to be able to create decoupled architectures for more modern software that notify each other of changes in the downstream system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The Customer Object not being Observable is a big miss and needs to be added ASAP! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

One of the best.

Their API is very fast, Lean and mean allowing developers to rapidly develop mobile and web apps. The Flows is Amazing. Moltin API follows a microservice architecture that enables you to plug commerce into any part of your application. The API is built on the JSON API specification, follows predictable REST URLs and supports cross-origin resource sharing. You can customize and modify the core objects and rapidly extend and customize all core objects to fit the business needs, as well as create new custom data. The Observables concept is really what I like. You can create decoupled architectures. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Well nothing so far that I found, but stay tuned. I am still feeling like a child in Toy Store. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The Moltin API is the way to go if your building modern mobile or web app, for any commerce. It enables you to plug commerce into any part of your application.

What do you like best?

Elastic Path is an API-first commerce platform. The REST-Level 3 API is quite versatile that can be consumed from CMS, Mobile, IoT, Voice platforms. Projects implementing Elastic Path platform can integrate checkout experience on multiple devices providing seamless user experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are not many examples of consuming REST-Level 3 APIs although Elastic Path has recently come up with React PWA Reference Storefront https://github.com/elasticpath/react-pwa-reference-storefront which is quite helpful to get going. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because it is an API driven commerce platform, it is quite flexible to integrate with different CMS platforms from Drupal to AEM to Sitecore Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The support from the guys at Moltin is incredible. Also, the ease of use and flexibility is something else compared to other solutions like Magento. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Not much for now. Maybe more features in the backend to get near the functionalities that are usually in other platforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Having been through the process of evaluating and kicking the tires on the CloudOps infrastructure Elastic Path provides, I can confidently say it surpasses what any other platform I've worked with provides, and I've used a lot of leading packages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The CloudOps package still isn't perfect, and requires some fumbling through the documentation to understand all of the bits and pieces, but once you work through it, the deployment is incredibly straight forward, single button type environment builds. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Modern cloud infrastructure deployment, and fast time to market are two of the main benefits of the Elastic Path stack. Integrating with a best of breed CMS to deliver great experience, and then to be able to use hte cloud products to quickly make changes and test those changes, is wonderful Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

When we built a new digital commerce solution, we needed one that was extensible and flexible enough to meet the needs of the business. We also wanted a solution that was API first, rather than the traditional big iron monolithic solutions. Elastic Path gave us all this in spades, and continues to meet the performance and business needs. The core platform is solid, and the ease of adding modules that extend the core functionality were also big points that validates our decision to go with Elastic Path. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Upgrading the software needs to be planned well if you make a lot of customization. It's not daunting, but should be managed well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our speed to react to changing business needs has improved quite a bit. What used to be a several months or even year+ project now typically gets done in a fraction of the time. In terms of performance, we now have the capability of handling 10x of what our old systems from a very large Elastic Path competitor used to be able to do. And with the Commerce UI, our business teams can make changes directly to the catalog and promotions rather than having to open a ticket with the technical teams.

What do you like best?

Elastic Path is a great commerce solution for those promoting digital codes and services. I love EP's Coretex API technology. It allows you to deliver consistent, real-time transactional data to everyone of your customer channels beyond desktop/mobile from the largest digital billboards and kiosks to the tiniest wearables including Google Glass. EP seamlessly integrates into CMS / marketing platforms such as Adobe Experience Manager and OpenText CEM. I also enjoy the advanced bundling, live authoring personalized mechandising, and product information management features that come ready to use out of the box. EP's subscription billing option is second to none. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

EP is a great solution, although it's price point is not targeted toward SMB. There no SMB options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When selecting Elastic Path, I would consider:

- Do you sell digital goods or services?

- Are you looking for an Omni-Channel Solution that has the ability to connect above and beyond into digital magazines, mobile and web applications, advertisements, kiosks, wearable technology and more

- Do you have a need to service commerce customers with a recurring billing solution>

- Do you require personalization, advanced bundling?

- Do you require advanced product information management? Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Elastic Path's API Coretex solution allowed for the platform to embed commerce in spaces that a traditional "built-in" CMS would not allow for -- meaning access to newer and digital channels that have never been accessible. Definitely a future proofed model. EP's subscription engine has made reoccurring billing a breeze. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Some of their consultants were superb. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Almost all customers will have to customize the application but it really isn't built for extensions so everything is difficult and it takes much longer than expected to get everything done. You are always afraid that you are breaking some important portion of the system even with simple customizations.

Many of the out of the box features don't work when you have millions of page views or products. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Think long and hard before going with this option. There are likely better choices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
